Tuesday Thoughts…

This view is from my front porch yesterday morning.

I’m not exactly grateful for the snow on top of snow, but I am grateful that I have a Toro snowblower and that hubby made sure I knew how to use it!  Sometimes my new neighbors, Christian and Gaelle, offer  to shovel for me but it’s not too bad with the snowblower.

I’m grateful that my car started with no problem this morning as Dave and I are going to the gym soon. Yes, we are that dedicated as it is 2 degrees F. out!  And I would feel bad if his trainer was there and we didn’t show as then she won’t get paid…

I have warm gloves and coats and am grateful for my Bearpaw boots!  And later I’ll be grateful for my Instant Pot as I’m going to make butternut squash soup and maybe Italian beef for hot sandwiches.

Tomorrow we are expecting daytime highs of about 15 below so we are not going anywhere on Wednesday.  Maybe not even to the mailbox by the street!

  1. Ugh. We’re in the deep freeze the next couple of days too, but no snow. Is it April yet? 😕

  2. Butternut squash soup sounds perfect for these cold days. I was listening to the news last night and heard that there were parts of the midwest that would have minus 60F this week. Bundle up, Dee!

    1. Tomorrow is our worst day with wind chills possible to minus 60! Schools are pretty much all closed Wednesday and Thursday because of cold and lots of companies are asking employees to work from home. Then by the weekend it might be 40 here! Just crazy!

  3. We got hit pretty hard last night with snow as well. Over 30cms here and 300 collisions over night. It’s a beautiful day today though! Lots of sun and only -9 out!
